Watercolor Bluebonnets (1st Grade)

WOW!  I was blown away at the mad skills my 1st Graders have for watercolor!  Look at these AMAZING watercolor bluebonnets they created for their Texas themed PTA program!!!  I mean, come on!  They are truly BEAUTIFUL!!!

First we talked about how the bluebonnet is the state flower, and pointed out the parts of the bluebonnet.  Then we did a guided drawing.  I passed out watercolor crayons and we colored with warm and cool colors.  Then we painted with water.  After they were dry we outlined with black markers, and added a touch of white for the middle of our flowers.

OUTSTANDING work 1st graders!!!
